List of Junior Eurovision Song Contest winners: The Junior Eurovision Song Contest is an annual contest organized between member countries of the European Broadcasting Union for children aged between 9 and 14 (8 and 15 between 2003 and 2006, 10 and 15 between 2007 and 2015). This junior contest has been broadcast every year since its debut in 2003, and is based on the senior version entitled Eurovision Song Contest, one of the longest-running television programmes in the world since the debut in 1956. The contest’s winner has been determined using numerous voting techniques throughout its history; centre to these have been the awarding of points to countries by juries or televoters. The country awarded the most points is declared the winner.
There have been 14 contests, with one winner each year. Ten different countries have won the Junior Eurovision Song Contest. A song from Croatia won the first contest in 2003. The country with the highest number of wins is Georgia, with three wins. Macedonia is the country with the longest history in the contest without a win having made twelve appearances since their debut in 2003.
Winning the Junior Eurovision Song Contest provides an opportunity for the winning artist(s) to capitalise on their success and surrounding publicity by launching or furthering their international career. Some artists from Junior Eurovision have progressed later in their careers to participate in national selection finals for the senior Eurovision Song Contest, including Molly Sandén who represented Sweden in 2006 and later took part in the 2009, 2012 and 2016Melodifestivalen. Nevena Božović represented Serbia in the Eurovision Song Contest 2013as part of Moje 3 and became the first contestant to compete in the Eurovision Song Contest after competing in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest, where she came third in 2007. The Tolmachevy Sisters are the second contestants to do so, participating (and placing 7th) in the Eurovision Song Contest 2014 after winning the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2006 with their entry, “Vesenniy Jazz” (English: Spring Jazz, Cyrillic: Весенний Джаз).
